    Motivated by the multihomming capability of the mobile devices and the fact that the heterogeneous wireless access networks overlap in coverage, mobile operators are looking for solutions that will benefit by simultaneous use of the available multiple access interfaces. Multipath or multilink transfer deals with the problem on how to effectively aggregate the bandwidth by simultaneous usage of heterogeneous networks that a host is attached to in order to improve the throughput.

    This paper deals with a simulation based analysis of bandwidth aggregation techniques and their impact on higher layer applications. The analysis is performed on a multipath model developed with OPNET Modeler, which is an advanced research tool that supports modeling and integration of various kinds of built-in networks.
